Hemingway always held it against his dad for having his tonsils taken out, with out an anesthetic (Myers 48). Hemingway portrayed his father as the doctor in Indian Camp. In the story Nick asked his father about giving the Indian woman something to stop her screaming during the caesarian. Nicks father states “No. I haven’t any anesthetic…but her screams are not important.
He moved to London to become a lawyer. In June 1891 Gandhi moved back to India, to practice his studies. He was quick to discover that he lacked knowledge of Indian law and self-confidence at trial. Instead, Gandhi moved to South Africa when he was given the opportunity to work with a yearlong case. While in South Africa Gandhi experienced its racial prejudice.
After living for 20 years in South Africa, practicing law and advocating for Indian equality there, he returned to India at the age of 45. His mission became to advance the cause of Indian independence from Great Britain. He led the Indian National Congress and was jailed repeatedly for acts of civil disobedience. In one of his most famous protests of British rule he led thousands of Indians on a march to the Arabian Sea to collect salt in protest a salt tax. On this occasion 60,000 people including Gandhi were jailed.
There have been many books, plays, films, and works of art from this particular era that continue hold the fascination of the general public. Gladiator was written by David Franzoni and directed by Ridley Scott. Some of the main actors are Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Richard Harris, and Oliver Reed. It was filmed all over the world in different studios and locations such as Morocco, Siena, England, UK, California, and even Italy. All of the cast and crews traveling around to perfect this feature film paid off in the end when it grossed thirty four million in the opening weekend alone.
The movie Gandhi starts off with the assassination of Gandhi on January 30, 1948. He was killed because of the split of Hindus and Muslims into Pakistan and India, instead of trying to keep the country united (which was impossible at the time). The story then jumps back to Gandhi early in his life, when he is a practicing attorney. He is traveling in South Africa on a train and is thrown off because he refuses to give up his first class seat. The conductor wants him to move because he is Indian.
After this, he returned to India for a short period and then went back to South Africa because he was not able to get job in India. After a lot of struggle he finally got an offer from a firm in Natal, South Africa. In South Africa the Indians weren't welcome by the white people . One day Gandhi got pushed out of the train when he refused to leave his seat for a white person, it was then that he decided never to be pushed down again and to fight for the rights of minorities. He started to lead the Indian workers in South Africa and fought for their rights.
After each episode of rebellion, however, Gandhi would promise himself that he would never do that thing again, and, astonishingly, never did. Gandhi’s family was set on his becoming a barrister. After graduating high school, he attended an Indian college for a while before deciding to continue his studies in England. His mother did not want him to go to England, but after promising her that he would abstain from alcohol, meat, and women, she gave her permission. In England Gandhi found his time more occupied by “personal and moral issues” than those of law.
